Question:

"Some ambassadors endeavor to decieve the representatives of some foreign countries."
Which of the following corrects a misspelling in the sentence above?

A Replace decieve with deceive
explanation


"Replace decieve with deceive" is the correct answer. This is correct because the i-e rule indicates that c is followed by e-i.
"Replace ambassadors with ambassaders." This is incorrect because the correct ending is -ors, not -ers.
"Replace foreign with foriegn." This is incorrect because foreign is an exception to the i-e rule.
"Replace endeavor with endeaver." This is incorrect because the unusual but correct ending is -our, not -er.
